C'mon you guys..The RCC is a Work of the Devil, the Great deciever of Truth.

I'am not sure if there is 1 true church where Jesus is in absolute control. Noboby here has that information. But as a ex RCC i can attest to the fact [IMO] that there is no Singular Christian Church that is favored over another.
If you feel there is, then by all means, come aboard and share your thought's.

I have beel waiting and looking for many years to find that 1 church to worship in.Thank you one and all.

Since YOU are not God,--nor do you have ANY AUTHORITY to speak for God,---your anti-catholic "twisted, distorted and heretical personal opinions" have ZERO CREDIBILITY and MEAN NOTHING!!.. In other words, YOU have absolutely "no idea" as to what you are talking about, which is (no different) than ANY of your other 42,000 bible only contradicting and iinconsistent Protestant "editorialists!!!-- This comes as "no surprise" to ANY of us Catholics who know the TRUTH of the TRUE WORD OF GOD, which comes ONLY from Jesus Christ HIMSELF, manifested in and through HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church!!!!
Please post the citation that refers to the exclusive speakers for "God" - past and present.

You do post as if you know these things.

If you don't have a listing of such indidividuals, I will consider from this point that you really don't have any knowledge of Christianity, you parrot what other men have stated, and the same continuous rant only shows you have one piece of paper that you constantly repeat from.

In truth hojo, you ain't got shite, except for a constan evil and hatred of others and what they believe.

I'm so glad I am on the other side of the fence, just so I can point out your hypocrisy.

'You can't have Christ without the Church,' Pope reminds Wednesday Audience
It is erroneous to think that humanity can have Jesus Christ without the Catholic Church, and God’s plan for humanity includes and is intimately connected with the Church, Pope Francis taught today as part of a new series of reflections that he is beginning during his weekly Wednesday General Audiences. Pope Francis ended the series of reflections on the Creed begun by his predecessor Benedict XVI last week, and this week began his own Wednesday series of undetermined length centered around the Church, its nature, and its importance in the plan of salvation. The Holy Father reminded the nearly 90,000 pilgrims gathered in a rainy St. Peter’s Square that “it is the Church that brings us Christ.”
“Even today, some say,‘Christ yes, the Church no,’ like those who say,‘I believe in God, but in priests, no.’ They say,‘Christ: yes. Church: no.’ Nevertheless, it is the Church that brings us Christ and that brings us to God. The Church is the great family of God’s children,” the Holy Father taught.“Of course,” the Pope said,“the Church also has the human aspects: in those who compose it, pastors and faithful, there are flaws, imperfections, sins – the Pope has his, as well: he has lots of them; but the beautiful thing is that, when we become aware that we are sinners, we find the mercy of God. God always forgives: do not forget this.”
The catholic church is nothing more than the biggest deceiver of mankind, they teach nothing but false doctrine. Can't you get it that the only true church of the bible is the Church of Christ, why can't you comprehend that? I urge you to go to the nearest Church of Christ and get baptized and start your life as a child of God. My friend you are lost and you need to get right with God before it's to late.

You both seem to utilize your belief in Orthodoxy as a way to better yourself.

If more people used this mentality, religion would become what it is always referred to as - "a personal relationship with God" - not one to preach to unknown onlookers or by free-lance, arm-chair evangelical wanna-bees.

Many don't realize these semanitcs, because more than likely, many were never told of these semantics.

I AM POSTING IN BEHALF OF GOD'S SON...WHO DIED FOR MY SINS...
SOME 700 YEARS BEFORE HE CAME TO EARTH ISAIAH SAID OF HIM
Isa 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
Isa 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5 But
1.he was wounded for our transgressions,
2.he was bruised for our iniquities:
3.the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and
4.with his stripes we are healed.
Isa 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and
5.the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
HE TOOK MY SIN UPON HIM SELF
AND
HE IS ALTOGETHER WORTHY OM ALL THE PRAISES I CAN BESTOW UPON HIM..
AND MORE
Amen

And,who ate we to deserve such mercy ..

All we can do is,repent of these transgressions,heaped on HIM.

love ..honor and praise Him...

There is a church that is of the bible and that is the Church of Christ. The Church of Christ was established in the year 33 AD on the day of Pentecost. This is the church that Jesus said he would build, Matthew 16;18. Why is the Church of Christ the true church of the bible? It's because no other church worships according to the bible like the Church of Christ does, which is in spirit and in truth. I would not mind if you like for me to prove to you anyway you desire to prove to you that the Church of Christ is the church spoken of in the bible. The catholic church was brought about by a few people of the church who decided they liked the attention they were getting from the roman dignitaries, and thus you have the catholic church.

Over time, the forms in which the sacrament of confession has been administered have changed.
In the early Church, "public confession" did mean it was done outdoors. Confession was public; that is, one confessed one’s sins openly in church, in the presence of the entire faith community.
Private confession to a priest was always an option for privately committed sins. The priest who “stood in” for the community, as its presiding officer and as its witness to the penitent’s repentance.
In the fourth century the penitents of the Church were divided into four classes.
C
LASSES OF PENITENTS
THE WEEPERS
Before the church there was commonly either an open area surrounded with porticoes, called atrium, with a font of water in the center. This was the place at which the first and lowest order of penitents, the weepers stood exposed to the weather.
AUDIENTES, OR HEARERS
The first part after passing through “the great gates,” or doors of the building, called the Narthex in was a narrow vestibule extending the whole width of the church.
In this part, to which Jews and Gentiles, and in most places even heretics and schismatics were admitted, stood the Catechumens, and the Energumens or those afflicted with evil spirits, and the second class of penitents ), who were called the audientes, or hearers. These were allowed to hear the Scriptures read, and the Sermon preached, but were obliged to depart before the celebration of the Divine Mysteries, with the Catechumens, and the others who went by the general name of hearers only.
KNEELERS OR PROSTRATORS
The second division, or main body of the church, was called the Naos or Nave. Before coming to the Ambo, in the lowest part of the Nave, and just after passing the royal gates, was the place for the third order of penitents, called in Latin Genuflectentes or Prostrati, i.e., kneelers or prostrators, because they were allowed to remain and join in certain prayers particularly made for them. Before going out they prostrated themselves to receive the imposition of the bishop’s hands with prayer. This class of penitents left with the Catechumens.
In the other parts of the Nave stood the believers or faithful, i.e., those persons who were in full communion with the Church, the men and women generally on opposite sides.
THE CONSISTENTES
Amongst these were the fourth class of penitents, who were consistentes, i.e., co-standers, because they were allowed to stand with the faithful, and to remain and hear the prayers of the Church, after the Catechumens and the other penitents were dismissed, and to be present while the faithful offered and communicated, though they might not themselves make their offerings, nor partake of the Holy Communion.
It was the last grade to be passed through previous to the being admitted again to full communion.
CORRECTION In the early Church, "public confession" did NOT mean it was done outdoors. Confession was public; that is, one confessed one’s sins openly in church, in the presence of the entire faith community.

@ Working for the Lord....Does the Church of Christ teach about the New Earth and New Heavens that Jesus said He Would Establish in his 2nd Coming? 2Peter 3:13...Rev 21;1.?? I don't believe you have that teaching as a real sceniro, happening by Jesus in that time period. Most likely your church focuses on the rapture and the selected ones going to heaven while the rest are left here in the earth. Is that a correct understanding i have of the C o C?

2nd'ly> how does your church teach you about remaining neutral in the world affairs? Do they condone the killing of the USA Enemy's or do they say, Don't get involved, stay neutral.
You see why i have differculty in finding the True Church. Jesus sy's that his disciples should be neutral in world affairs, so how can we worship in spirit and truth, but yet not be neutral in world affairs...We would be hypocrites, would we not??

HE IS NOT "TAPPIN AT MY DOOR" BUT USING YOUR OWN FINGERS TO TYPE ON YOUR PC.
I DON'T FEAR HIM
BECAUSE
I AM COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS...
AND IN ORDER TO GET TO ME...
HE WILL HAVE TO COME THROUGH THE BLOOD...
AND HE
HATES IT.
Just as you hate the truth of God's word....IT REVEALS YOU UNGODLINESS...
Joh 3:18 He that believeth on him/JESUS is not condemned: but he that believeth not/JESUS is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
Joh 3:19 And this is the condemnation,
that light
is come into the world, and
men loved darkness rather than light,
because their deeds were evil.
Joh 3:20 For every one that doeth evil
hateth the light,
neither cometh to the light,
lest his deeds should be reproved.
Joh 3:21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
The devil quotes the bible you know. Your hatred is un excusable. Remember to love Christ, you have to love your enemy, you are to see the face of Christ in EVERYONE, not just protestants.

Other posters have tried to explain things to you in the past, you fail to comprehend. You are here only to aggravate. What I posted came from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. And I hate to tell you this , but the Cardinals and the Pope who , by the way was the Blessed Pope John Paul II, wrote the Catechism, know more about indulgences than you. The Holy Spirit guided them, you know.

Acts 2;41 41 Those who believed what Peter said were baptized and added to the church that day—about 3,000 in all. If you are not a member of the Church of Christ then you are lost. Jesus built one church and that church is spoken of in the bible. Romans 16;16 16 Greet each other in Christian love.[a] All the churches of Christ send you their greetings. We worship according to the bible and are the only one's that do, this is what makes us the only true church of the bible.
Church of Christ is a denomination...When Christ referred to the seven churches in Rev...He mentioned not any denominations...yours included.
